Take SMC Manager Mike Callagy’s Keys and send him home, TODAY.

By Michael G. Stogner

$23.5 Million is an update, I’ll give you that. 1:37:18 mark

Agenda Item #5 Update on Event Center Surplus Safety Equipment

This was the title for Agenda Item 5 of the March 22, 2022 Board of Supervisors Meeting. That might explain why there was only ONE public comment on this topic.

The person that put this on the Agenda was San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy, with the approval of County Counsel.

I would say this was more of a regurgitation of the same story that Mr. Callagy has been promoting since January 13, 2022, when he told ABC 7 I-Team Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes that he knew nothing about it.

San Mateo County News.com Article March 21, 2022

In San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy’s Presentation he fails to mention these three, that I reported on the day before in the above article.

Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez, San Mateo County Chief Financial Officer Roberto Manchia, Department of Emergency Management Director Daniel Belville.

County Manager to the Board of Supervisors March 22, 2022 “I think the Important thing is that we are TRANSPARENT. We own up to it, and we learn from it”

I personally think the Important thing is tell the truth from the Get Go.

Let me give a simple example, On January 13, 2022 SMC County Manager Mike Callagy never mentions James Brown or the Wine Country Marines a 501-C in Sonoma. He did say “We brought in the Marines.”

He doesn’t mention Iliana Rodriquez of his office has been vetting James Brown and WCM since December 2021.

Mike Callagy, Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Warren Slocom and Dave Pine. You are NOT TRANSPARENT.

Board of Supervisor Meeting March 22, 2022 Item 5 starts at 1:36:00

Red Flag 1:39:00 mark, “The other goods were eventually moved outside for temporary storage and were regrettably ah remained there during the significant storms last fall LEADING TO THE INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION.” What do you know about this Independent Investigation so far? What is the scope of this Investigation? Is the Investigation about the significant storms? Why was there an update without having this Investigator make a presentation at the BOS meeting?

Red Flag 1:39:11 mark, “We’ve been lucky enough throughout this AFTER ACTION to really partner with Wine Country Marines to continue to work on distributing these surplus equipment. Everybody knows what an AFTER ACTION is, Right?

The residents of San Mateo County remember what the Foster City Gang of 3 did to their City Manager.

Foster City Manager Peter Prinejad was FIRED for ZERO reason. The residents of Los Altos Hills are the winners in that case they now have a Great City Manager.

Still many more questions to be answered.

San Mateo County’s $10M PPE story.

By Michael G. Stogner

This is a work in progress, more questions remain.

As it turns out Several San Mateo County Employees knew a lot about that PPE product.

Here are three who knew according to San Mateo County Counsel.

Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez, San Mateo County Chief Financial Officer Roberto Manchia, Department of Emergency Management Director Daniel Belville.

“County Manager Mike Callagy was not involved in these discussions and did not authorize the distribution of equipment to or through Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022, and he did not have contact with Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines on or before that date.”

San Mateo County was looking to Donate the More than $10M of PPE Prior to September 2021

This took a little while to get this information from San Mateo County Government. As you will remember on January 13, 2022 at 6:12 PM, ABC News Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes broke the story to the residents of San Mateo County. What we learned from Interviews with County Manager Mike Callagy and Candidate for Congress and former President of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors David Canepa, Neither of those two gentleman and the rest of the Board of Supervisors had a clue about the more than $10M of product. They didn’t know it was moved, wet, or about to be DONATED by the Wine Country Marines on January 25, 2022.

In December 2021, a MassVax employee working at the Event Center suggested to Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez that Wine Country Marines, a non-profit organization, might be a potential recipient organization.  Ms. Rodriguez thereafter began vetting Wine Country Marines to determine whether it would be an appropriate recipient.

Question? How many other 501-C’s were vetted?

California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES)

On January 12, 2022, Mr. Belville spoke to representatives from CalOES, who approved donations to non-profit organizations. Question did they approve THIS donation?

January 12, 2022 Mr. Belville spoke to James Brown of Wine Country Marines, who agreed to help donate and distribute the equipment and PPE to organizations in need. 

You might be asking, When was San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management created? The answer is December 6, 2021 by San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy.

Mr. Stogner,

We’ve looked into your request, and, after reasonable inquiry, here are the facts:  Prior to September 2021, when certain safety equipment stored at the San Mateo County Event Center was moved outdoors, the County was looking to donate surplus safety equipment and PPE stored there, including equipment and PPE that was never moved outside. 

As part of this process, the County was vetting potential organizations to whom it might donate the supplies.  In December 2021, a MassVax employee working at the Event Center suggested to Deputy County Manager Iliana Rodriguez that Wine Country Marines, a non-profit organization, might be a potential recipient organization.  Ms. Rodriguez thereafter began vetting Wine Country Marines to determine whether it would be an appropriate recipient.

In early January 2022, San Mateo County Chief Financial Officer Roberto Manchia directed Department of Emergency Management Director Daniel Belville to confirm with the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) that supplies could be donated to non-profit organizations.  On January 12, 2022, Mr. Belville spoke to representatives from CalOES, who approved donations to non-profit organizations.

That same day, Mr. Belville spoke to James Brown of Wine Country Marines, who agreed to help donate and distribute the equipment and PPE to organizations in need.  On January 13, 2022, this arrangement was confirmed, and Mr. Brown posted as much on his blog.  No PPE or safety equipment was given to Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines prior to January 13, 2022.  We are also not aware of any County employees who communicated with Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines prior to Mr. Belville’s discussion with Mr. Brown on January 12, 2022; as far as we know, the only person related to the County who spoke with Mr. Brown before this date about this issue was the MassVax employee who originally suggested Wine Country Marines to Ms. Rodriguez.

County Manager Mike Callagy was not involved in these discussions and did not authorize the distribution of equipment to or through Wine Country Marines on or before January 13, 2022, and he did not have contact with Mr. Brown or Wine Country Marines on or before that date.

We will continue to investigate your records request, and, as indicated in my March 11, 2022 email, I will provide an update on or before March 24, 2022.

Thank you,

Half Moon Bay Resident David Eblovi Lawsuit for Truth in Sandra Lee Harmon’s Homicide by Sheriff Employee.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: 4:00 PM March 17, 2022 Attorney for San Mateo County Daniel T. McCloskey appeared and informed the Judge that Mr. Eblovi filled a Motion to Dismiss the case 2 weeks ago. The Judge checked his records and said the court has no record of that being filed. Mr. Eblovi did not make an appearance.

Thursday March 17, 2022 at 3:30 PM

Livestream from court

DAVID C. EBLOVI vs. COUNTY OF SAN MATEO – 21CV002208

This is a case to watch, Why would a resident of Half Moon Bay, California be compelled to Sue the Government of San Mateo County over the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. by the Sheriff’s Office Employees on May 5, 2020.

Why would David Eblovi file the Lawsuit in Alameda County and not San Mateo County?

Why does San Mateo County Government want this case heard in SMC?

Mr. Eblovi knows the truth about how San Mateo County Government works and it is the Residents who are responsible for the behavior of ALL Government Officials.

SMC PPE “Convoy of Garbage Trucks filled with Brand-New PPE to the Dumps.”

By Michael G. Stogner

Photo by Mark DePaula

Remember when ABC 7 News Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes first reported on January 13, 2022 at 6:12PM.

SMCN.com Article about partnership with SMCDEM

ABC 7 News PPE Story Video

At the 5:04-5:20 mark Dan Noyes reports a source confirmed the cost of all the PPE is more than $10,000,000.00. He also reports from the same source who said that a CONVOY of garbage trucks picked up a bunch of Brand-New PPE and took it to the dumps in the last 2 months.

That is when I had to ask, How many trucks make up a CONVOY? How does anybody know where that CONVOY of Garbage Trucks took the Brand-New PPE in November or December of 2021?

I have Good News to report on that subject. Last night I received a response from Caiti T. Busch of the San Mateo County Counsel Office to my public records request.

The County has NOT disposed of any of this equipment, but rather has distributed it or continues to store it, so I do not have responsive records with respect to disposal.

So now the question gets back to the CONVOY of Garbage Trucks full of Brand-New PPE in November or December 2021. Were they simply distributing it?

San Mateo County is at 59 days and the Government has still refused to answer the Simple Question, Who gave James Brown the PPE on or Before January 13, 2022.

Here is the short list of possibilities: Travis Kushman, Dan Belville, Mike Callagy, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Ret. Lt. John Kovach, SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus.

Mike Callagy, Ask James Brown, Who gave him the PPE on or before January 13, 2022?

By Michael G. Stogner

James Brown is the President of Wine Country Marines a 501C in Sonoma, California.

On January 13, 2022 at 6:00PM posted this on WCM Facebook page.

The Wine Country Marines are excited to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management. Specifically, the County DEM has graciously donated to the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.

I must admit I don’t think I had ever heard of James Brown, Wine Country Marines or San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management.

San Mateo County Health Travis Kusman e-mail

By Michael G. Stogner

My mother said many times, “If you don’t know where something is, it could be anywhere.” The same is true if you don’t know who the person is. It’s been 25 days and San Mateo County residents don’t know who ordered the PPE outside. Who ordered the CONVOY of Garbage Trucks? Who gave James Brown of Wine Country Marines the PPE on or before January 13, 2022. So I thought I would ask Travis Kusman.

Good morning Mr. Kusman,

My name is Michael G. Stogner I am the co-owner of San Mateo County News.com

As I’m sure you are aware, San Mateo County Government has failed to identify the person who ordered the PPE to be moved outside the Event Center. It’s been 25 days.

It was also reported that a Convoy of Garbage Trucks picked up PPE in the last two months.

I have 2 questions for you: 

Are you the person who ordered the PPE moved outside?

Are you the person who ordered the Garbage Trucks?

Thank You in advance for answering these questions.

Question for San Mateo County Supervisors

By Michael G. Stogner

Why wasn’t San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy placed on Administrative Leave January 13, 2022?

January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes was reporting on MORE than $10M of PPE outside and unprotected from the elements and theft. He reported a Convoy of Garbage Trucks removing PPE within the last 2 months from the site. Here are some questions he asked Mike Callagy on January 13, 2022.

Mike Callagy is San Mateo County Manager.

DAN NOYES: “Can you give me an idea of the amount of money we’re talking?”

MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. There’s a lot of PPE out there.”

DAN NOYES: “Is it safe to say over a million?”

MIKE CALLAGY: “I would say, oh yeah, I would say over, over a million.”

DAN NOYES: “Is it multiple millions or-“

MIKE CALLAGY: “I don’t know. But it’s, it’s, it’s, there’s a lot of PPE out there.”

San Mateo County’s Modern Day Media. PPE Story

By Michael G. Stogner

First reported by Dan Noyes of ABC 7 on January 13, 2022 “MORE than $10,000,000.00” of PPE.

Former President of the Board of Supervisors and Candidate for Congress David Canepa claimed he first heard about it from Dan Noyes that day. He also knows Mike Callagy works for the Supervisors.

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy told Dan Noyes the same thing. He also said “I don’t know” when asked, How much are we talking about? He went from I don’t know to $7M in less than 24 hrs. That is a huge difference, We should start there before anything else happens. HOW MUCH WAS IT?

James Brown President of Wine Country Marines (WCM) posted on Facebook 12 minutes before Dan Noyes broke the story that San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management gave him the PPE and that he would be distributing it on January 25, 2022.

On January 25, 2022 the Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 to give County Manager Mike Callagy authority to distribute the PPE. Up until that moment he was limited to $10,000.00 not $10,000,000.00

That is why I asked Michelle Durand of Mike Callagy’s Office for a copy of the document from SMC to James Brown giving him and the WCM the more than $10M in PPE.

I’m still waiting for that Document.

Hi Michael

Let me see what I can do. With the holiday, it will probably not be before tomorrow but I’ll be back in touch.

Hope you’re well, too.

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy

On January 13, 2022 ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes reported MORE than $10,000,000 of PPE was ordered moved outside the San Mateo County Event Center and there was some minor damage to the Cardboard Boxes. That same day He asked the County Manager Mike Callagy what the value of the PPE was? Mike Callagy responded “I don’t know.”

The next day Mike Callagy issued a Press Release that got published all over the internet that stated approximately $7.7M of SURPLUS PPE.

Mike Callagy went from “I don’t know” to a $3,000,000.00 difference in less than 24 hours.

That number has since been reduced in the media to $7,000,000.00

I thought it would be a Great Idea if the 5 Supervisors did their job and Verify the EXACT Dollar amount of PPE that was purchased with Taxpayer money. Not one of them liked that idea.

Here is a list of some questions I thought they might want to get the answers too. They had NO Interest.

Remove Item 12 from the Agenda January 25, 2022
What is the current Inventory of the PPE at SMCCC?
What was the actual cost of all the PPE stored at SMCCC?
Who ordered the PPE moved outside of the SMCCC? What date?
Who ordered the CONVOY of Garbage trucks to remove PPE from SMCCC? Date?
What is Wine Country Marines experience in distributing PPE items in this volume?
What has been Wine Country Marines largest distribution to date?
What other organizations were considered to distribute this PPE?
Why is there no mention of Distributing this PPE to San Mateo County Only?
Why wasn’t this PPE distributed when SMC first received it?
What made James Brown think the PPE was already donated to WCM?
Who in San Mateo County made him think that?

On January 25, 2022 at the Board of Supervisors Meeting there were only 2 Public Comments on Agenda Item 12. I will publish the Video of that meeting as soon as Mike Callagy allows it on the San Mateo County Website, as of 1/29/2022 @ 7:00 AM it’s not available.

Good Morning Mike,
What is the name of the Investigator you hired? 
What date did you hire him/her?

What is the scope of the Investigation?
Thank You

The reason I asked this question is that Former President of the Board of Supervisors and current Candidate for Congress David Canepa refused to ask it at the January 25, 2022 BOS meeting Agenda Item 12. Now to be fair to David Canepa Not one of the Supervisors asked that question.

As of this moment 29 hours later Mike Callagy has not responded.
